A formal complaint has been filed against advocate Deepika Singh Rajawat for hurting the sentiments of the Hindu community by sharing an objectionable cartoon about the festival of Navratri. In a tweet on 19th October, the lawyer shared a picture depicting a man worshipping Goddess during Navratris while the same person pulling the legs of a woman on other days.
The tweet met with strong resentment on social media, as people criticised her for unnecessarily targeting a pious Hindu festival. And now, a a formal complaint has been filed against her to S. N Shrivastava, the commissioner of Delhi police.
“We request you to arrange to book her under the relevant offenses at the earliest. The intent of the said post is a clear indication to incite and provoke Hindus, break peace-harmony and create unrest in the society,” the complaint reads.
The copy of the formal complaint lodged with @DelhiPolice through an email under CC to the MD @TwitterIndia to delete her a/c. A prompt action is anticipated.#ArrestDeepikaRajawat pic.twitter.com/MXmPZ5AhPi

Meanwhile, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has also strongly objected to the post made by Rajawat. The central joint general secretary of VHP, Dr. Surendra Jain, slammed Rajawat saying that the post was not merely an attack on Hindus, but on India as a whole.
#Arrest_Deepika_Rajawat. इन जैसी महिलाओं को हिन्दू त्योहारों पर ही इतना भौंडापन क्यों सूझता है? हिंदू संस्कृति के सामने विश्व नतमस्तक है. यह हिंदू त्योहारों का ही नहीं भारत का अपमान है. इन मानसिक रूप से विकृत दुष्टों पर केस करके #सेकुलरमाफिया को सबक सिखाना चाहिए.👍 https://t.co/FSmUPC68Aw
